My Life List: Part 1

I've seen a lot of "life lists" on the internet and I want in. Here is Part 1 of my Life List:

1. See inside of a UPS truck.
2. Write a post with the word "halcyon" in the title.
3. Have all the famous people I've ever mentioned in my blog read it and respond and become my friend, even if I hate them.
4. Hug a woman unselfconsciously.
5. Go to Ireland, get divorced, and leave the church--set my family back 150 years in one fell swoop! Well, I probably won't really. But I could, and the power is intoxicating.
6. Have Prince write me a hit song.
7. Slow dance with Robert Plant, platonically.
8. Find out that Robert Plant is my father. (I hope. I hope.)
9. Have a dog I love that obeys me.
10. Sing on key.
11. Be completely engrossed in Sunday School for a whole hour.
12. Invent something even better than television.
13. Eat locally.
14.Watch every episode of the BBC's All Creatures Great and Small series.
15. Win a Give Away
16.Own a king size bed.
17. Get 220 followers on Twitter.
18. Eat every meal out for a day.
19. Buy someone's love.
20. Attend Comic-Con.
21. Avoid being buried alive.
22. See a play.
23. Lose a pound a week for 80 weeks, gain 2 pounds at Christmas every Christmas until I die. 
24. Cook a turkey.
25. Write a life list.

I can already tell that writing these down is moving me in the direction to make them happen. I believe in possibility. Further installments to come! There will be 100 things on my life list.


  1. I love your life list. You have inspired me. I shall begin to assemble my own list. It will not include Comic-con or Robert Plant. But your trip to Ireland does not sound boring.

  2. Yeah, I want see the inside of a UPS truck too. Tell you what. I'll ship something to you, you slip out the back while your kids sign for it and you sneak in and get pics.

  3. Excellent life list, ambitious with a touch of whimsy.

  4. Do you just want to see the inside of a UPS truck or actually go inside.

    And a King sized bed??? You guys sleep in twins don't you?

  5. Oh, number 11. Is it even possible?

  6. Don't tell your bishop you want to be totally engrossed in sunday school- he'll call you to teach it!

  7. Robert Millet teaches our SS, it is the first time in four children that I have not wanted my baby to cry during SS. (RS however is completely fair game.)

  8. My husband is a UPS man. The inside of a UPS truck isn't really that exciting. (Except for the ceiling is kind of neat.) I bet your UPS man would let you look though.

    Thanks for always making me smile and, quite frequently, laugh right out loud!

  9. 26. Find out who put the bomp in the bomp, bomp, bomp.
    27. Every day I read the book.
    28. Decipher the intricacies of the word "halcyon".
    29. Go to a KC & the Sunshine Band concert with Kacy while Casey Kasem does the introductions.
    30. Lather, rinse and repeat.

    And Prince, if you're listening...

    "It seems that I was busy doin’ somethin’ close 2 nothin’
    But different than the day before
    That's when I saw her blog, ooh, I saw her
    She wrote in through the out door, out door

    She wore a raspberry beret
    The kind U’d find in a second hand store
    Raspberry beret
    If it was warm, she wouldn't blog much more
    Raspberry beret
    I think I love her"

  10. I'm glad to see that another person has attend comic-con on their list!

  11. Thanks to you and Robert Plant, I just had my first "spit take".

  12. I think I had something to do with #18 and #22. I don't want to take all of the credit, but I do want to take some. Also, I'm interested in helping you with #4 & #13, (and #19 if you're offering. But it's not a deal-breaker.)

  13. #22, YOU'RE WELCOME!

  14. I'm a confirmed list-maker - but I've never been able to figure out the "life list" that is so blog-popular.

    Maybe it's just too late!!

  15. Seriously, you don't own a king sized bed? Berkeley has one for heaven's sake!

    Getting a *different* king-sized bed is on my list. You know you need a new bed when you get back from vacation and people say, "Isn't it nice to be back in your own bed?" and you think, "No, I want to go back to the hotel's bed."
